Isaac Copeland comes back for his senior year, withdraws from NBA Draft

LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) - On Memorial Day Weekend, Nebraska basketball continued to receive good news.  Isaac Copeland announced Sunday afternoon he will be returning to Lincoln for his senior year.

Copeland's announcement came just two days after his teammate and Nebraska's leading scorer from a season ago, James Palmer Jr., announced his decision to return for his senior season on Friday night.

Like Palmer Jr., Copeland entered his name for consideration in the NBA Draft, but didn't hire an agent, which allows him to return to Lincoln with full eligibility for his senior season.

During the 2017-18 campaign, Copeland was second on the Huskers in scoring, averaging 12.9 points per game.  The Georgetown transfer also averaged 6.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per contest.

Now with both Copeland and Palmer Jr. returning, Nebraska has all four of its top scorers from last season coming back for the 2018-19 season.  Copeland and Palmer Jr. are joined by Glynn Watson Jr. and Isaiah Roby on that list.
